# ( ii ) dimension characteristics ii)    two dimensional network:  plane                               _________________________

geometry:  Any three noncollinear points, A, B, C, form a plane – the simplest polygon is a triangle featuring three vertices and three edges.   The association among these basic units is the transitive property of equivalence:  If A = B, and B = C, then A = C, creating a cyclical function.  Planes contain an infinite number of points and lines and extend unbounded in the direction of all lines.

transformations: rotation______________________________________________________

A rotation is a type of geometric transformation that maps any object, given by its individual components or coordinates, to another location in the same plane by turning it around a point.  In effect, this transformation is a spin – since the pre-image and the image are congruent, this transformation is an isometry.  A rotation can be accomplished by reflecting an object across 2 intersecting lines as a composition.

transformations: translation___________________________________________________

A translation is a type of geometric transformation that maps any object, given by its individual components or coordinates, to another location in the same plane by adding or subtracting units to the coordinates.  In effect, this transformation is a slide – since the pre-image and the image are congruent, this transformation is an isometry.  A translation can be accomplished by reflecting an object across 2 parallel lines as a composition.
